Vintage Gloves

Long, short, gauntlet, fingerless and mittens, we all feel it’s a bit of a treat when we have an excuse to enclose our hands in our favourite pair of gloves.  All you need is a crisp winter day or a chilly evening and they can be the final touch to your look. Formerly such an essential accessory for men and women, today they are rarely essential but can become a luxurious extra.  With leather, suede, softest cashmere and fur lined, there are a myriad of stylish choices to keep your finger tips from turning blue.  Then, as far away from the purely practical is it’s possible to be, when searching for your inner MJ, you can embrace the rhinestones and the fingerless knuckle dusters.  Or if you want to the true glamour of Amal Clooney’s red carpet look, add a pair of long evening gloves to an evening gown for a flawless finish. 

Today, we seem to have forgotten how gloves can complete an outfit.  Some of our most iconic fashion moments, though you might have not noticed it, include a pair of gloves.  Arguably, without the gloves, these outfits would not be nearly the same.  Just look back to Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in the opening scene of Breakfast at Tiffany’s nibbling on her pastry.  Is it the LBD? Is it the sunglasses? The necklace? Or is it those black evening gloves created the perfect contrast and revealing Hepburn’s shoulders, focusing our attention of the beautiful shape of the back of the Givenchy dress.  Continuing in the monochromatic theme, the iconic Seine side photograph of Christian Dior’s Bar suit from his ‘New Look’ with its hip hugging cream jacket and full mod length pleated skirt, is completed by the elegance of the black gloves as the model poses and gestures her hands.  More recently Patricia Field used gloves to full effect in her costumes for each character of Sex and the City throughout its six series.  She has shown us colour, lace, long and half gloves and, most memorably, as part of the outfits in the final closing scene on a chilly New York day.  From designer From designer Yves Saint Laurent and Hermès, to simply beautiful craftmanship in leather from the 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s, Open for Vintage has a pair to tempt every hand.  Find your pair of perfect vintage gloves in our women’s gloves collection.
